coming off. it was nothing but red. >> images are just incredible, embers still burning as a firestorm sweeps through the smokey mountains. now families are praying for no more deaths. there is no love like the love between a little boy and his dog, and these two are taking social media by storm. now they're part of a mission to help other kids who need a safe place to call home. good morning, everyone, cory, gary and cheryl with you on this wednesday morning. also joining us. marty, it's cold enough for snow, but no precipitation today. >> no, not anywhere, really, in the state today. thank goodness we have the wind dying down here, at least in the metro area down to castle rock, up toward boulder and into the fort collins, loveland and greeley areas. it is still windy in the foothills. plenty chilly out here this morning. if you're out and about, teens and low 20s for the early part of the commute, grinding up close to freezing by the end of the commute this morning.
